Autumn Queen Crown Part Two

I gathered together all my mismatched gold button, beads and rhinestones for the fun part of making my crown for The Historical Sew Fortnightly Challenge #7: Tops and Toes. The glue I used is E6000. It dries clear and has a flexible, permanent hold. It works much better than hot glue.
It's a little messy from the tube though, so I used a tootpick to apply it
I wanted the crown to look rough, not pretty pretty princess. The jewels and buttons I stuck on have an almost random quality, although they were all very specifically placed. I may in the future, dull down the shine on some of the plastic buttons. Right now, I like the way the different colors of gold and silver give it a mosaic quality.
To see how I started this project see Autumn Queen Part One
I really love it. I think I might just have to start wearing it all the time. I may need to add some hair combs to the inside to help it stay on.
The Queen spent all her money on her crown and is neglecting her bangs
